(Newser) – If anyone knows a thing or two about looking young, it's Madonna's makeup artist. Gina Brooke provides the Boston Globe with tips on how she keeps the 50-year-old pop star fresh, like a virgin:

  • Find the perfect cleanser and moisturizer to hydrate aging skin.
  • Eat food rich in vitamins C and E to keep skin plump.

  • No alcohol! It's very dehydrating.
  • Play up your best feature. Brooke dabs on the eyeliner, shadow, and mascara to bring out Madonna's eyes.
  • Throw out the old makeup rules, and go with your gut. There's nothing more beautiful than confidence.
